and then let it move us into positive action. >> yes. >> so, i think people should not race to move from it, but to it is with it and ask, what would god have me do? >> yes. and you know, i can't agree with you more. from my other hat as a psychologist, one of the most important things for us to do is integrate feeling. we live in the don't feel culture. let's rush on, drink, eat, do something so we don't have to feel. but when we feel is when we heal. we have to feel it to heal it. i like what you said. when we it is with it, we can ask the deeper question what, would god have me to do? >> it is all about reflection. in our fast paced society, we don't find enough time to just reflect. but on many level this is trammed has caused the entire nation to -- this tragedy has caused the entire nation to stand back and reflect for a moment, on the nature of the shootings, what happen to our children, gun control laws and mental health issues. >> yes. there are a lot of issues. i can't help looking at the whole thing and saying how could we have prevented it. could the person who perpet
obama to tackle gun violence. >> we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. >> reporter: what exactly does he mean by meaningful action? critics of the president's record on the issue are pressing for specific proposals. new york mayor michael bloomberg said calling for meaningful action is not enough. we need immediate act action. we heard all the rhetoric before. what we have not seen is leadership. not from the white house and not from congress. gun violence has not been a priority for the obama administration. as he ran for president in 2008, he supported running a ban on assault weapons. >> keeping ak 47s out of the hands of criminals. >> reporter: once selected, he did not make good on his campaign pledge. the brady campaign to prevent gun violence gave the president across the board fs on its report card. >> the senate will come to order. >> reporter: a major obstacle for the president, congress, where even in the democratic controlled senate, little appetite to touch the controversial is
with executive action. take a listen. >> well, i think that there are a number of things, and those are things that we're going to be talking about over the course of the next few weeks. not an extended period of time. the president, i guess, will be talking about this, but have specific proposals for congress to consider. we'll also look at what executive action the president might take. megyn: joining me now, chris stirewalt, our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. so what kind of executive action is he talking about, chris? when he had the assault weapons ban in place from '94 to 2004, it was a big political deal, and a lot of folks who voted for it wound up getting kicked out of office because, you know, gun rights are something people feel very passionately about in the country. if it could have been done by executive action, in other words, that's probably how other presidents would have been done it too. >> well, certainly, the president in a second term might feel differently about this than he did in the first term. he has some latitude when
described. we thank you for your leadership, your action, and your work. and we thank your wife for sharing you with this country. [applause] fee thank you. you can put up their. you do not need to take it back to your seat. you figure out a way to get it to you. [laughter] what an evening. thank you for being a part of >> president obama troubles monday to discuss the tax cuts. our live coverage begins at approximately 1:35 eastern here on c-span. >> "washington post" reporter said last week that congress should not postpone the hard decisions such as dealing with the time and stuff -- entitlements such as last year. he joins mike allen at a breakfast discussion on the so- called fiscal cliff discussions. this is about 25 minutes. [applause] >> good morning, sunshine. welcome to the political breakfast. thank you for getting up so early. we are pleased to have an amazing double-header. if we will speak to senator rubio who last night give a big speech -- one of the first formal speeches looking ahead at the future of the republican party. we will talk about that. the amazing bob woodward w
long we have used politics and the second amendment to cover up our lack of action. yes, the supreme court affirmed we have a right to bear arms, but in that same ruling the court made clear that right is not unlimited. we do not, as justice scalia put it, have an unlimited right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever for whatever purpose. our individual right to bear arms is limited by a right among others to keep our children safe. any of those children could have been one of ours and for 20 parents, it was. we may not be able to stop every crime, we know that no single law or set of laws can prevent every act of senseless violence in our society, but we have the ability and the no-how to prevent many of them. we must simply find the courage. we can no longer be bystanders to injustice. we cannot continue to look on and do nothing. as shakespeare said, the fault lies not within our stars but in ourselves. we must act. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from washington, mr. mcdermott, f
year? next what? and if not us, who in this world is going to demand action to protect americans? joining me now is u.s. senator dick durbin of illinois. i want to read something from you which is very impressive, and it's in the op-ed pages of "the chicago tribune." quote, what holds us back are political organizations that are well-funded, well-organized, and determined to resist even reasonable limitations. there's a close political parallel between the gridlock in washington on dealing with our economy and national debt and the eerie silence in congress as the list of horrific gun crimes grows by the day. senator durbin, thank you. i know you have got a good heart on this as well as a good head about fiscal matters. what's wrong with the congress when it comes to protecting, ensuring the domestic tranquility? >> well, there's a legitimate concern about our second amendment, chris. you understand that part. but there's also a very strong political force that is trying to push forward, primarily for the dealers and manufacturers, an agenda that will sell more firearms and more
to gun violence. in the context of all that has happened, the lack of action, what is your agenda, and how do you plan to make it real. >> it's no different than it has been the better part of 20 years. i'm a gun owner. i'm a business person. i believe in the second amendment and the right to bear arms but the founders never extended that the second amendment extend to terrorists and criminals to buy guns without even a background check. toy guns and teddy bears have a multitude of regulations of how they're made and marketed. you need an i.d. to vote in many places. but in 33 states it's federal gun policy that you do not need an i.d. or background check to buy an unrestricted, unlimited number of guns. that is federal gun policy. it's left to the states and states do what they want. the only place where there is a background check requirement in assault weapons and handguns is if go to a federally licensed gun dealer. you can go to private dealers out of their homes backpack trunks, flee markets in 33 states and buy assault weapons cash and carry no i.d. or background check. tha
and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining a historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership, the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. the proposal for more armed guards in schools may be helpful in some instances, but it falls short of the strong, serious comprehensive action needed to stop the kind of horrific tragedy that occurred last week. many police that spoke to me on that day when we take a said that the killer was so heavily armed that they doubted they could have stopped him. the american people are demanding real change. the nra proposal fails to offer any real protection from violence. members in connecticut and around the country are writing and calling me to say that the nra does not speak for them. it was a call for action. the nra has failed to answer the call. we need to do something about these guns, about the assault weapons, the kind that was used in the new town tragedy. i am very proud to join and senator feinstein oppose the bill that will help put a stop to the proliferation of the assault weap

now. the president promised action. the white house announcing vice president joe biden will head an administrationwide effort to come up with legislation in the wake of the newt down massacre. what form that takes is not clear. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom.". >> hi, everybody, i'm martha maccallum. the president said he would to everything in his power to bring about change after a gunman massacred 26 people including 20 young first-graders at a connecticut elementary school. we're told he will announce the effort today. it will happen a couple hours from now. bill: steve centanni from the white house. what do we expect there, steve? >> reporter: well, bill, we expect the president and vice president joe biden come into the briefing room in a couple hours and begin process gathering information from inside their administration to formulate new policy, any kind of policy. any idea that could prevent this kind of mass violence, these kind of school shootings to happen in the future. this cops as newt town, connecticut, deals with the mass shooting. the yesterday
is standing by on the new york stock exchange. nicole: you are seeing back-and-forth action on the dow jones industrials. they do seem to like it because basically it is the fed putting everything on a silver platter here and is giving it to the world and printing more and find more. it is doing that for an extended period. the people on wall street are saying what are they trying it to unemployment rates you saw the market selloff and now regain its footing. you do the qe forever. gold will be something that we should take a look at. the dollar is something that we have watched slipping away. it is continuing to do that. we have seen things and drugs doing well. the dow jones industrials are up they have of a percent for the sixth day in a row. people were thinking that the fed would have a very accommodative sense. one of the things that we should look at is the market is very reactionary. the truth of the matter is they are not pulling anything and they are not raising rates anytime soon because the economy is not sustainable on its own. while you are seeing some minor improvements here a
on marshall and fdr to get this kind of action in place? >> i don't think he bluffed marshall or fdr, but, of course, he was a good politician. he was a great politician. he used to say he didn't like politics, but the approval rating of president was 65%, a number modern politicians would kill for. he was very good. the way he did it, and i'm not the first to discover it, but he had the great gift of being underestimated and how useful it was to be underestimated, and so montgomery could swan around, and churchill could bluster, and patton could be patton, and eisenhower kept it steady because he knew he was in charge. he let other people have the glory and blow off the steam, but at the end. -- but at the end of the day, he was running the show. he was marvelous at it. nothing preabs you to be president, but running the liberation of europe is not a bad preparation. [laughter] on the first night in office, he writes in the diary, "plenty of troubles and challenges ahead, but, you know, in a way, it feels like a continuation of what i did since 1941 and before." he was unphased by the jo
marines were killed in action. when he came home to america, he suffered from ptsd, as many of our warriors do. he spent time in a recovery facility in california to cope with the mental wounds of war. then in august, john decided to get some r&r. he wanted to go to costa rica with a fellow marine, ian, and they wanted to go on a surfing trip. according to ian, surfing gave john a peace of mind and helped really with his therapy. so the two packed up their car with their surf boards and began their journey from florida to costa rica. their trip took them through texas to the border, brownsville, texas. there they crossed the international border into matamoros, mexico, and that's as far as they got. john carried with him 100-year-old antique gun, a family air loom that belonged to his grandfather. when they arrived at the customs and border protection in texas, john did what he was supposed to do. he filled out all the necessary paperwork. he talked to u.s. customs and verified with them that the gun did not violate any mexican law. the two allegedly handed the mexican officials th
of the housing market. while they have already taken action to pretext the financial mortgage fund for single family loans from seeking federal funds, the f.y. 2012 report suggests that much more needs to be done to prevent such a draw. i want to hear more today about the administration's actions and proposals to minimize the risk to taxpayers stemming from their business and what safeguards are in place to ensure the quality and sustainability of the program. if the administration's actions and proposals will not be sufficient to restore f.h.a.'s fiscal health, i'm inclined to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle on the banking committee to find a bipartisan way to make shoo -- that happen. before i turn to ranking member shelby, i want to recognize his work as ranking member on this committee over the past six years. this may be our last hearing together this year, and we will have no ranking member next year. i'm part of our bipartisan record over the last two years we continued it the tradition of bipartisanship that this committee has been known for by passing signature bil

second big short idea of my career. >> this is p somewhat dependent on the ftc taking action. if they don't, what happens. >> i think the fdc will take hart look. i think the scc will take a very hard look. i think the new distributor will be better informed and this is where the media comes in. this is where, i don't know how many distributors watch cnbc, i'm sure some do, but we have 50 plus members of the media here, much broader collection of the media like cnn, et cetera, that will reach to the community. think about a pyramid scheme -- >> what would you say to those who would say you are trying to advertise yourself on one side of this. you are trying to manipulate the success of the company and therefore the stock price. >> we simply want the truth to come out. if distributors knew the probability of making $95,000 a year, which is the millionaire team as they call it, level, was a fraction of 1%, no one would ever sign up for this. and we simply expose that fact. the company has done their best to keep that from the public. the media exposes facts about things like pyramid schemes
by the speakers ponied, procedural excuses. they are part of excuses. they expect action. i say to the speaker, this is not a game, it is not scoring political points of putting wins on the board, there will be very serious consequences for many of families if congress fails to compromise. it is time for the speaker to return to the negotiation table ready to compromise. it is time for the house, especially house republicans to remember what is at stake. i repeat. further $50,000 program would pass overwhelmingly in the house. it is up to the speaker to let that occur. melissa: that was harry reid speaking on the floor. he was criticizing speaker boehner. we are waiting for senate authority leader mitch mcconnell to take to the podium and ressond to that. he is up at the podium. we will listen. >> here with the leaders of the democratic party, here in the senate, other than the president, these are the folks with the greatest responsibility for protecting the american people from the tax hike in america. what do they do, they stand in front of the cameras and laugh. they giggled at a bunch of

health treatment or swift enforcement action, whatever is needed. a single and simple policy response from washington cannot fix this. we all want to have a more caring and supportive society but the fragmentation of family, civic and our nation's community life lends itself to isolation, anger and for some even despair. now let's be clear, this tragedy is the result of a deeply disturbed person who committed unspeakable crimes. that is where the blame rests. but perhaps, madam speaker, but perhaps an outcome deserving of these children who died is that we all take some responsibility for the degradation of culture, what we think about, the way we conduct ourselves and perhaps strive for that which is noble, that which is good and that which is just. madam speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. under the speaker's announced policy of january 5, 2011, the gentleman from maryland, mr. bartlett, is recognized for 32 minutes as the designee of the majority leader. mr. bartlett: thank you, madam speaker. i would like to echo the concerns of my colleague. we a

action comedy hour is here. it is now. we are now at the point where in just four days, every american's tax rates are scheduled to go up by law. every american paycheck will get considerably smaller. that would be the wrong thing to do. gerri: no kidding. we have been telling you that for weeks. democrats and republicans alike should rename their parties the procrastination party. that is because like a lot of college freshman, ey left their work until the last minute. including the 800 billion-dollar fiscal cliff that we have been talking about. a hundred billion dollars it hasn't happened yet. it's not like the deadline comes as a surprise to anybody at l, the least of all coness. they were the ones who extended the bush taxcuts. originally passed back in 20,122,010 and 2012. for two years now, they have known the issue is looming and they chose to do nothing about it at all. but that is not the onl thing that this lame-duck congress has to do for the end of the year. the farm bill passed last summer to help farmers hit by the drought has to be extended. into the next year, it must

know this: that pleas for immediate action, for jobs, for tax justice, for climate action will, at best, be met with proposals for modest accommodation and half measures and that the struggle for deep, systemic change will be met with fierce opposition. so an all-important conclusion emerges. namely, that the prospects for systemic change will depend mightily on our democracy and on the power of the social and political movement that is built. transformative change, and even most of the proposals for reform offered by progressives in washington today, will not be possible without a new politics in america. so a pro-democracy political reform and building a new, progressive movement in america must be priority number one. in the end, it all comes down the to the american people and the strong possibility that we still have it in us to use our freedom and our democracy in powerful ways to create something fine; a reborn america for our children and grandchildren. we can realize the new american dream, an america the possible, if enough of us join together in the fight for it. this new dre

lugar -- but because of dick lugar's vision, careful negotiations and decisive action, indianapolis became a model for other cities are across the nation. when the law took effect in 1970, indianapolis' population rose from 476,000 to 793,000. moving from the 26th-largest city to one of the nation's dozen largest cities literally overnight. when i think of the numerous, positive changes in indianapolis over the past 40 years, i see the fulfillment of the vision of then-mayor dick lugar. now, the midwest has a way of producing men and women of sense and decency. not all of us fall in that category. sometimes that sense is questioned. but we do have individuals who have the ability to see to the heart of a matter and to resolve and find a way to resolve a problem. such skill is extremely valuable in the united states senate, a body that by its very designing -- design is posed to foster compromise between legislators on issues before the nation. and so it was a natural progression that following his success as mayor, dick lugar's next job would be serving hoosiers as a united states s
